Workshop: How to Make Open Science Practice Attractive in the Economic Sciences

On 17 February 2020, a workshop “Open Science in Economics – From Politics to Practice” (German) with 12 researchers and teachers from the field of economics took place at the ZBW in Hamburg. Open Science in economic research was examined here in a very practical way in everyday life: Under what conditions is Open Science attractive for individual economic researchers and how could they imagine their personal commitment in practical terms? What information on the topic of Open Science would help individual economic researchers? How do economists assess the importance of Open Source in the economic sciences? Using open practices […]

Modeling Low Carbon Energy Futures for the United States

A new project will create an Open Energy Outlook for the United States to complement the US Annual Energy Outlook, which produces modeled projections of domestic energy markets. The Open Energy Outlook will utilize an open source energy system optimization model to examine US technology and policy pathways for deep decarbonization. Energy models provide a self-consistent framework to evaluate the effects of technology innovation, shifts in fuel prices, and new energy and climate policies. The focus on open source code and data is intended to foster community involvement in the effort, allow researchers to interrogate the model and reproduce published results, and engender trust within the broader community of modelers, analysts, and decision makers. The project has been funded by the Sloan Foundation.

Open Science, Collaboration and Participation in Energy System Research

Open Energy Modelling has been built up as a research community over the last ten years aiming to bring transparency to the field using an array of Open Science methods for the planning of energy systems. The role of collaboration in the research cycle used by scientists in this engineering community is now an established Open Science practice. Similar practices of collaboration and participation outside of academia involving the public are still in their infancy. Harnessing public participation in energy planning and policy development is likely change as the energy sector is undergoing rapid changes due to its large contribution to greenhouse gases and the consequent demands for transparency and innovation to tackle climate change.

Imagine a Research Future Defined by Open Values: Introducing the Open Science MOOC

Image: UN Sustainable Development Goals https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/ The world of research is not working as well as it could be. On all sides we see issues with reproducibility, questionable research practices, barriers and walls, wasteful research, and flawed incentive and reward systems. If we want research to be more effective in helping to solve the problems …
